Duncan Farrington, founder of Farrington Oils, says:
“I was born and brought up on Bottom Farm in the beautiful Northamptonshire village of Hargrave. After university, I joined my parents in the family business as a fourth generation farmer, and a passion was awoken, which quickly turned into an obsession for the fantastic culinary properties and nutritional benefits packed in those tiny little seeds.

Following years of research, I launched Farrington’s Mellow Yellow in 2005 as Britain’s first ‘seed to bottle’ cold pressed rapeseed oil. With my Mother’s help bottling the oil, I would drive around local shops in my old battered car, gaining customers who remain loyal to this day. Later in our farmhouse kitchen, my wife Eli, with her superior taste buds and trusty jam jar to hand, started creating salad dressings to add to the range. Today we produce as many bottles in a day as I did in the whole of our first year. Provenance remains as important as ever and with our fantastic team we ensure that the same passion, attention to detail and quality ingredients still goes into every bottle we make.”

Sustainably grown and environmentally responsible:
All of the rapeseed used in Farrington’s Mellow Yellow is grown to LEAF (Linking Environment and Farming) Marque standards, this is a system designed to promote environmentally responsible and sustainable farming methods. LEAF farmers care about the countryside and their produce can be identified by the LEAF Marque which appears on their labels.

Bee hives
Wildflower meadow margins for native pollinators
Beetle banks to encourage a natural ecosystem
